My mom gave me a fundraiser cookbook, and the recipe I’ve used most is for skillet nachos. My whole family's on board. For toppings, think sour cream, tomatoes, jalapeno and red onion. —Judy Hughes, Waverly, Kansas

"To cut back on the sodium, I omitted the salt and used my own taco seasoning mix which is sodium-free. You could also use the unsalted variety of tortilla chips to cut back even more. Husband approved, we will having this again for sure."
